7:01 am
political misconduct congressman jesse jackson jr. is officially calling it quits. when discussing the attacks in benghazi, i relied solely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. already long lines of die-hard shoppers hoping to score deals. >> they're calling this gray thursday. major retailers are trying to get the jump on one another by opening thanksgiving night. >> we're pretty much here for the tvs. >> we all know the true meaning of thanksgiving is great price on tvs. >> mace's thanksgiving day parade balloons. it is always quite the sight. who lived in america before the europeans arrived? >> the vikings. no? interview chris christie. >> what is he doing on thanksgiving? >> i'm afraid he's eating. people you haven't seen all
7:02 am
year year, your family comes over to the house. i know you're lying. two turkeys, cobbler and his friend, gobbler. >> life is all about a second chance. these birds are moving forward. and all that matters. >> u.s. troops serving our country are being served thanksgiving dinner. >> thousands of miles away on "cbs this morning." >> from kabul, afghanistan -- happy thanksgiving! captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning" on this thanksgiving day. happy thanksgiving. norah o'donnell is off. we are waking up to good news out of the middle east. for the first time in more than a week the cease fire between israel and hamas held overnight and continues to hold at this hour. >> people in gaza and southern israel are leaving shelters and returning home after that week of air attacks across the border. hamas and its supporters inside gaza are claiming victory. charlie d'agata is in gaza city
7:03 am
this morning. >> reporter: it's like being on a different planet in gaza city whole world away from what this place was like 24 hours ago. people are smiling, congratulating one another. we had to fight through traffic for the first time. and for the first time people here got a good night's sleep and woke up without the worry of israeli air strikes. palestinians by the thousands rallied in gaza city today in support of hamas and to celebrate the end of the worst fighting gaza has seen for years. city streets that had been deserted for more than a week suddenly sprang to life. workmen began the long clean up after eight days of bombardment from israeli air strikes and mourners buried the last man killed by those attacks before the cease fire took hold. funerals of the 160 people killed, almost half of which were civilians, had to be put on hold for days because it was too dangerous to come out any
7:04 am
sooner. the very moment the cease fire took effect last night, palestinians emerged from their homes and filled the streets, cheering and firing weapons into the air in celebration. relieved palestinian families who had taken refuge in the u.n. school grabbed their belongings and headed home. >> translator: if i had $20 million u.s. i would not be happier than i am today. >> reporter: gaza strip by the thousand s thousands, soldiers stood down, grabbed their gear and headed back to their barracks. for palestinians here they're celebrating more than just an end to the fighting. hamas is claiming victory and they're getting support from places they never had it before. and the reason is many people here feel that they're leaving this fight with more than they had before it started. for "cbs this morning," i'm charlie d'agata, gaza city.
7:05 am
clachling victory for a different reason. clarissa ward is in cairo where the truce agreement was sealed yesterday. what are the possible sticking points in this new cease fire agreement? >> reporter: good morning, charlie. good morning, gayle. happy thanksgiving. the main sticking point that may arrive with this agreement is that in the third clause of that cease fire agreement that essentially says after a cooling off period israel must start opening up gaza borders and allow for free passage of trade and also people. israel is very reticassant of lifting that blockade. you may see weapons into the hands of militants but hamas is adamant that that blockade needs to be lifted. a few sticking points raised
7:06 am
with that one. >> what does the role that egypt played mean for egypt and the region going forward? >> reporter: egypt has definitely emerged as the winner in all of this. secretary of state clinton calling it a cornerstone of stability in the region. and i think the west had been a little bit concerned about how egypt's recently elected islamist government would handle a situation like this. they did seem to strike a balance between appeasing their muslim brotherhood supporters who wanted them to talk tough with israel while making sure there's no chance of jeopardy jeopardizing that 32-year-old peace treaty with israel and, of course, the $1.5 billion in u.s. annual aid that comes attached to that treaty. >> clarissa ward thank you. we now go to margaret brennan in washington where she is learning more about the united states' role in the cease fire deal. >> good morning to you charlie, and to gayle. u.s. and israeli officials say
7:07 am
u.s. president obama sealed the deal with benjamin netanyahu but hillary clinton delivered the cease fire by showing up the primary contact between the administration and netanyahu. over a decade they speak frequently. clinton was the first administration official to meet egypt's president, mohamed morsi, after his historic election. and now by elevating him to peace broker the u.s. is supporting a young islamist president who has struggled to consolidate control of his own country. >> did the u.s. have to make any deals or concessions to make this happen? >> peace comes with a price. morsi's help here is going to get egypt around $450 million in emergency cash. congress may release those funds in the coming weeks, according to administration source. house appropriations committee froze that money in september after the president had already pledged it. the white house is also going to ask congress to increase financing for israel's iron dome
7:08 am
defense system. the u.s. gave israel about $3 billion in military financing this year. so the big picture an official at state tells me that this effort was about stopping the killing, not launching a mideast peace process for the obama administration. a senior israeli official told me give it one to two more days before you call this an agreement. israel's zero confidence in hamas and prime minister netanyahu used this as a deal sponsored by regional ally egypt at the request of a global superpower. >> margaret brennan, we thank you. more than two months since the attack that killed four americans in benghazi, libya. for the first time u.n. ambassador susan rice is speaking out about that day and her heavily criticized remarks a few days later. sharyl attkisson is in washington. good morning. >> good morning, gayle. after she made those remarks that benghazi appeared spontaneous rather than preplanned ambassador rice is
7:09 am
breaking her silence and defending herself. outside u.n. security council meetings reporters asked rice why she originally made no mention that the benghazi attacks were thought to be the work of terrorists. >> i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary. and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. >> reporter: intelligence officials told congress last week they knew and reported internally that the attacks were likely terrorism and an al qaeda affiliated group could be involved. four days later rice gave no hint of that. >> we have no information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned. >> reporter: last week former cia director general petraeus told congress someone in the obama administration removed references to terrorism and al qaeda from his agency's summary. senator john mccain, who has called for a special committee to investigate the matter has
7:10 am
led the call to find out who made the changes and why. >> i was on "face the nation" the morning she came on and told that incredible story. and right after it the president of the libyan national assembly said it was al qaeda. we know it was al qaeda. and yet she never changed her story. >> reporter: yesterday rice also spoke to mccain's criticism of her. >> i do think that some of the statements he made about me have been unfounded, but i look forward to having the opportunity at the appropriate time to discuss all of this with him. >> reporter: because of the flack, republican senator ss mccain and lindsey graham have said they would have a hard time supporting rice to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state if the president nominates her. last week president obama rushed to her defense. >> she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her.
7:11 am
if senator mccain, senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> next week you can expect republicans in congress to try to find out exactly what was that intelligence that blamed the youtube video and spontaneous mob. closed door briefing said everything intelligence officials told them about those were related to terrorism. how did the spontaneous mob become the main narrative for several weeks? >> cherylsharyl attkisson, thanks. jesse jackson jr.'s career in congress is over. he resigned after nearly six months on medical leave and two weeks after he was re-elect eded. as jay levine of our chicago station cbs 2 reports, there will be a special election to replace him. jay, good morning. >> charlie, good morning to you. special election a very crowded field of candidates seeking to replace jackson who faced both illness and campaign finance
7:12 am
issues which led him to choosing his words carefully. >> letter of resignation speak to itself. i had hoped and tried to return to washington, ihe wrote. i know now that will not be possible. his father said not only was his son not up to returning to washington but was not up to talking about it. >> he wanted to do a press conference today. he didn't feel that he could take the presser. >> his focus now, focus on restoring my health. after jackson was forced from his washington office into hospitals and treatment centers in june. at first both colleagues and constituents were understanding. some still are. >> he's going through a lot of stuff. probably the best thing for him to do right now, tend to himself and make sure he's okay. >> but then word surfaced while he was being treated his attorneys were also negotiating a guilty plea to misuse of
7:13 am
campaign funds. >> if you're not here to serve the people then what's the point? your health is supposed to be first. deal with your health. but the people still need help while you're trying to deal with your own private issues. >> reporter: jackson alcohol aknowledged the investigation in his letter pledging to cooperate with the investigators and accept responsibility for my mistakes. in a statement, jackson's attorneys confirm they were negotiating a resolution but that it could take months. jackson himself remained out of sight wednesday. those who spoke with him were moved. >> america is losing out of the halls of congress one of its most able most articulate and most clear voices. >> reporter: it's now up to illinois governor pat quinn to announce details of a special election to fill jackson's seat which will remain open until at least late spring. >> ironically, the last time an illinois governor had to deal with a high profile replacement,
7:14 am
jackson was also involved fwelg to replace president obama in the senate. governor rod blagojevich was accused of selling that seat. some say the congressman who once was thought to have a bright future may follow him to jail as well. gayle, back to you. >> okay, thanks. volunteers in new york and new jersey will hand out thousands of meals to storm victims who are still homeless and, of course cannot make dinner for themselves today. elaine quijano is in monmouth new jersey. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, gayle. volunteers in this kitchen behind me have been up and working for hours. they've been busy preparing thanksgiving meals for residents of a new jersey town devastated by hurricane sandy. >> we got a great team. lot of people are working hard for this town.
7:15 am
>> reporter: seabright new jersey mayor hasn't had a chance to slow down since sandy tore through her community three weeks ago. just about every single home or business was damaged or destroyed, including the mayor's own house. >> unrecognizable after superstorm sandy waters pulled back. the amount of damage to our infrastructure was at the time incalculable. >> reporter: 1,400 seabright residents were forced out of their home. across the region 72,000 homes and businesses were damaged by the storm it's estimated. thousands remain homeless. nearly half a million people across the region have applied for federal assistance. urgent recovery effort mean ss an army of out-of-state workers will be spending the holiday away from their families in areas hit hard by sandy. roughly 64,000 utility workers and 7,6 hun00 red cross workers.
7:16 am
>> gratitude has helped me get through it. i hope that the fellow residents share that sense of gratitude for the many helping hands that have come to lift us up. >> reporter: she and other seabright residents will get the chance to give thanks today. tim mcmahon is senior vice president with a local restaurant group that has invited the entire town to a free thanksgiving brunch. he helped to organize this special event despite losing his own home to floodwater. >> everything we take for granted we shouldn't take for granted. thanksgiving is properly timed. absurd as it sounds i think whenever this is through, we will have gained from it. >> reporter: organizers are expecting about 400 people to attend this brunch. the mayor of seabright estimates it will take about ten years before the town can fully rebuild the homes and businesses
7:17 am
that were damaged. charlie and gayle? >> elaine thank you. it's a good time when a lot of us have a lot to be thankful for. people were planning a great thanksgiving but it's quite different because of unexpected consequences. >> it's nice to see, charlie, when the time comes, people always step up. those stories never, ever get old. time now to show you this morning's headlines from around the globe. lincoln journal star. nebraska says the nation's worst drought in decades is getting worse. more than half of the continental united states has been in the drought since summer. conditions had gotten better during october. now the drought has deepened again into due to a continued lack of rain. los angeles times is reporting hostess will shut down down, planning to lay off 15,000 workers right away. analysts expect that some of its famous brands like twinkies and ding dongs will be bought by other companies and may live on. companies cutting back on business travel before the potential fiscal cliff, usa

7:41 am
afghanistan at the u.s. embassy. put it directly to you like this. soccer is universal. you don't have to be tall or super strong. there's no sort of size restriction or age restriction. everybody can play. here it takes courage to come out. i mean it's a really hard thing to teach courage. and i think every one of these girls has it in terms of the fact that they can pick up a ball. >> what do you use the ball most with? your feet. i chose to have thanksgiving here in afghanistan and it was a little bit short notice. i think everybody is disappointed i won't be home for thanksgiving but i think everybody understands. the opportunity to come over here, in my view it makes it more special to come at that time of year. you start to understand what it means to be in a war zone. you see, you know this is their life. this is their daily lives. they go about their business but they have this constant fear
7:42 am
that, you know of a suicide bomber or a shell dropping on them or some sort of violence that we don't ever know. i'm definitely thankful for security at home and living in a country where this isn't happening right now. i don't think i got that good of an understanding of how lucky and how fortunate we are in the u.s. when we can play anything and when you travel the world a lot of times, you know you'll pick up a soccer ball and once you show them you can play all of a sudden you're one of them and it doesn't matter you're a female or an american. or that you're of this religion or that religion or whatever. so if you pull back with one foot push out with the same one. this is a chance for me to give something here. it's funny every time i have this illusion that i'm going to give something and travel somewhere and do something, i end up taking more than i give. obviously these girls are

8:00 am
around the world and here at home. and along with the turkey of course, there's football. we'll ask dan marino about today's nfl match-ups and how football got to be so important on thanksgiving day. but first, here's a look at today's eye opener at 8:00. >> it's like being on a different planet today in gaza city. it's a whole world away from what this place was like 24 hours ago. >> the cease-fire between israel and hamas held overnight and continues to hold at this hour. >> egypt has definitely emerged as the winner in all this. >> did the u.s. have to make any deals or concessions? >> peace comes with a price. egypt is going to get around $450 million in emergency cash. >> jesse jackson jr.'s career in congress is over. the illinois congressman resigned wednesday after nearly six months on medical leave. >> volunteers here in this kitchen behind me have been busy preparing thanksgiving meals for residents of a new jersey town devastated by hurricane sandy.

8:02 am
>> reporter: gaza city is an entirely different place than what it was 24 hours ago. in fact, even last night, you can probably hear the streets are full of traffic today, the shops are reopening. bulldozers and cleanup crews have started the work cleaning up after this bombardment eight days of israeli air strikes that have destroyed buildings here in the city. and they're holding rallies today in gaza city. not just in celebration of the cease-fire in the end of fighting, but this is really a rally in support of hamas. hamas is claiming victory in this battle against israel and the israeli military. they're gaining support from places that they never had it before. because many palestinians that we spoke to say they are leaving this fight as much as the suffering that they've had to endure with more than they came here with. now, anybody -- just anybody's guess and there's certainly a concern whether the cease-fire will hold. but there's great optimism and great celebrations here in gaza

city today. for cbs this morning, gaza city. republicans and democrats in washington are hoping for some kind of truce to avoid the fiscal cliff negotiations will pick up again after the holiday weekend. it was in 2010 that former senator alan simpson erskine bowles came up with a plan that was ignored. their idea is getting a second look. >> reporter: two years ago, the fiscal commission that came to be called bowles/simpson issued a blueprint for the nation's fiscal problems. a blueprint that demanded so much in taxes and spending cuts it died an instant washington death. that was then. today, the politics have changed. >> say yes to simpson/bowles, mr. president. i'm willing to say yes to simpson/bowles. >> reporter: today the broad outlines of bowles/simpson are the backbone of what's being discussed in the fiscal cliff negotiations. their plan was a mixture of the
8:04 am
president's call for higher taxes, plus the republican call for tax reform and lower deductions. in medicare and social security bowles and simpson say the nation has no choice but to cut future benefits for those earning high incomes. we spoke to both men in washington. >> right now the president is under pressure not to touch social security and medicare. >> of course. so don't touch it. let's just let the damn thing rock along, grab your shorts you know get ready for the fun. >> let them go broke. >> let them go. >> if we don't touch them if we just take them off the table, you know what's going to happen? you know? we're not going to be able to spend money on whatever else it is you love. >> we asked both bowles and simpson if they were encouraged by at least the tone of compromise coming from congress and the president. >> based on what you see at the white house right now, are you optimistic or not? >> i'm not. no. somehow the word compromise means you're a wimp. how did we ever get to that point in america?
8:05 am
>> optimistic or not? >> i'm not optimistic, but i'm hopeful. i think -- and i think al agrees with this this is the magic moment. we have a second term, democrat president who has been clear that he's prepared to put the entitlement programs on the line on the table. you've got a republican speaker who really gets it who understands the depths of the problems we face. and he said he's prepared to put revenues on the line. >> reporter: both men say the failure to reach a fiscal cliff compromise this year would risk the entire economy. the good news, they say, is that congress and the president seem to agree on that. for cbs this morning, wyatt andrews, washington. >> that's an interesting piece. because everybody i know in washington involved in this thing looks at simpson/bowles as the model they should work off of. >> it's interesting to go back where we started two years ago. grab your shorts. >> they've got more support at
8:06 am

8:07 am
food laverne morris and her troops hand out. >> thank you. >> thanksgiving. >> reporter: this season, the gratitude is great. >> if you didn't have this opportunity, you wouldn't have -- >> i wouldn't have a turkey. >> reporter: but today monica bonds, the mother of three is bringing a turkey home one of 300 anonymously donated to the church. >> happy thanksgiving. >> thank you you too. >> reporter: on wednesday, the turkeys ran out before the line did, but laverne morris had a solution. >> the first 300 will get turkeys and the next 300 will get chickens. >> almost 40% of the people served in the chicago area are under 18. more than a third of the households included at least one employed adult. >> thank you, brother. >> reporter: food for the pantry here and hundreds of others in the area comes from the greater chicago food depository. kate mayer is the executive director. >> the face of hunger is not just the face of homeless

>> a movie that seems sentimental but then it explodes and goes all over the place. >> "life of pi"? >> i want to see that. >> you guys are hesitating. >> it's almost like to the other side of "lincoln" for you. >> it's a technical marvel. actually don't disrecommend that movie. there's an audience for it and people will love it. >> would you agree? >> i agree. it's a great movie to take kids to older, 9, 10 11 who can hand tell emotional stuff because it's visually wonderful. i think the ideas in the story are a little sappy and soft but this 3-d computer generated tiger is an extraordinary feat of digital film making. >> this movie does have some sort of a depth perception effect like "avatar" did. >> you both hesitated though.
8:43 am
>> you have to get through the boy and tiger on the boat you have to go through a lot of kind of spiritual mumbo jumbo that some people find touching and loving but my heart and cynical soul find it hard to take. >> we're seeing more medium sized intelligent movies this year. >> yeah. i think so. >> is "argo" an example of that? >> yeah. it's a movie that doesn't have to have a great big budget but a crowd pleasure. "argo" is a great holiday movie. it's been out for a while now. >> ben affleck is proving himself as a director. >> he just doesn't cast himself in the starring role. he's grown. >> tony you always pick out interesting movies that are not highly publicized. what have you liked this year that fits that standard?
8:44 am
>> well boy. there's one that's coming thunder weekend. a really terrific french movie called "rest in bones." a belgian actor whose name i won't pronounce. well done. really kind of a very tough drama. he's a fighter. she's a trainer, killer whales that was in a terrible accident horribly disfigured. it's another one of these movies that ends up where you expect to it go but getting there is such an intense and emotional and satisfying experience. terrific performance. >> dana what are you looking forward to that hasn't yet opened? >> "the catherine bigelow movie. >> the mission to get osama bin laden. >> describing the whole mission.
8:45 am
>> what about "les miserables." >> i'm excited about the techniques. he's having all the actors sing their own songs but taping it on site. dubbing their voice later. >> it's an effect kind of live performance on camera. some can really sing. >> ann hathaway. >> thank you for spending part of your thanksgiving with us. >> a pleasure. >> we like being here. >> yes, we do. we do. you do too. >> thank you. >> if you haven't found the right wine for your thanksgiving dinner not to worry. the head of cameron hughes wine i wonder what his name is can help. he'll tell us why business is so good coming up next on cbs "this morning."

8:49 am
wine business without growing a single grape. his company takes award-winning wines and sells them at a much lower price. cameron hughes joins us now. how do you do that? >> well i run a company or virtual winery. so i source -- we source wine but price it by the gallon and buy high end wines. >> high end wines by the gallon. >> not a romantic way of looking at it. >> fill her up. >> we move wine in tanker trucks. there exists in california a high end bulk wine business. you can buy wine from some of the best wine rice. and why guys sell wine depends. some sell because hey i got ek sees or a component that fit into this. i buy it. i bottle it and ship it. low overhead company. i can usually chop the price in half. >> you've been called the robin hood of wine. do you like that title? >> that suggests i'm stealing from the rich. that's not the way it really

8:52 am
just a business? >> oh, no i'm passionate about wine. i always have been. i cut my teeth on the wine business selling franzia box wine. but i wanted to do something on the high end. i cut my teeth early on wine and been exposed to great wine so that's why i start this company. when i realized i could buy fantastic, amazing wine and sell it for a great price that was my reason for getting in this business. >> congratulations. >> thanks for having me. >> that does it for us. have a great thanksgiving. norah happy thanksgiving with your family in washington. next is your local news. we'll see you tomorrow right
